Madge


As a student I worked for a several years for a monstrously obese old queen called Norman Gray, who ran a crammer in Oxford. He was famous for bon mots ('I have given up the pleasures of the bed [wheeze, wobble] for the pleasures of the table...') and for a series of outre stories. One of the worst was that he used to take his Rolls (yes) to Italy every summer, and leave it unlocked in some piazza while he went for dinner. 'And when I came back', he averred, 'it would be full of boys.'

How nice, therefore, to see Madonna applying much the same principle in the deliciously instagrammed  video for Turn Up the Radio. As nugatory and meretricious as anything she's done lately, it's still worth a look.

hey Bo - 'nice vid' seems to be the phrase commonly used on Youtube - After years of admiration I went off MDNA a bit following her creakingly self-centred appearance on Graham Norton a few months ago - did you see it? BTW I took the same questionnaire you did yesterday - it's on my personal blog...
